Hungry locals looking for finger lickin’ good fried chicken will be disappointed today.

Marshalswick’s KFC has been forced to close after the takeaway has ran out of its signature ingredient, chicken.

Restaurants all around the country are experiencing the same problem after KFC took on a new delivery contractor.

A KFC spokesperson said: “We’ve brought a new delivery partner on board, but they’ve had a couple of teething problems – getting fresh chicken out to 900 restaurants is pretty complex.

“We won’t compromise on quality, so several of our restaurants in the UK are either closed, have a reduced menu, or shortened hours over the weekend.

“We want to thank our incredible restaurant teams, who are working flat out all hours to get us back up and running again.”
